2/4 Drop with towing

Anybody have a 2/4 drop and tow a trailer? I just wondered how lowering the truck would affect it? I only haul a few dirtbikes and fourwheelers.

to keep the rear axle from contacting the bumpstops and also having your tires get extremely close to getting shredded while loaded or towing you should think about a air assit if your going to run a flip kit in back.

How about towing with 22's,.. weight around 7500lbs. I know air assist is recommended,.. but not sure on the weight allowance.

the truck is rated for it, what are the those 22's rated for? Should say on the side walls. Factory 20" GoodCrap's are rated @ 2600lbs per tire. Don't forget to account for the weight from the truck as well.

Yeah, thats Brian's old truck with air assist bags. A 2/4 drop with air assist can tow like a champ though.
